Help starts here.

2-1-1 is an easy to remember number that helps people cut through what can be a confusing and overwhelming maze of information and resources. Trained Resource Navigators help people assess their needs and link them directly to resources and information that could change their circumstances for the better. Whether a person is seeking essential services or looking for volunteer opportunities in his or her community, 211 is there 24 hours a day, seven days a week via phone, text, and chat.

In the last year, PA 2-1-1 Southwest assisted over 80,000 people in getting the information and referrals they needed to gain financial stability, remain in their homes, keep the heat on, among other critical needs.
